Willow Knoll / Rockland County, New York


An enchanting stone house overlooking the Hudson River in Rockland County, New York, is on the market in Grand View-on-Hudson. Known as Willow Knoll, the six-bedroom cobblestone Craftsman home was built circa 1891 by Joseph Ellicott, the inventor of the air brake and the first commodore of the Tappan Zee Yacht Club, and recently restored, in 2015.

The 430-square-metre property sits on 0.5 hectares of what used to be an old sandstone quarry site and is surrounded by lush greenery and river views, which can be enjoyed on the extensive wraparound porch featuring a curved ceiling and stone archways — via Curbed
